This is a fictitious travel guide book for a "physical narrative."
One of the Chicago Transit (Blue Line) subway stations is located in
the middle of a seven-way intersection. Inspired by this location,
this guide book depicts the subway station as a tropical island,
while representing the uniqueness and diversity.

By taking the form of a generic travel guidebook, this book invites
the audience to experience the fantasy, The gradation creates an
aurora effect, which emphasizes the surreality.
